This morning, I got a request for this post. I haven't written much about the topic of beauty before, but I felt really compelled to write this post immediately. Beauty it is such a complicated concept because we all have such different views on what beauty feels and looks like. My idea of beauty might be completely different from yours. So, when I talk about beauty, I'm not just talking about fashion, makeup and style - I'm also talking beauty from within.You know, I'm no expert on this topic either. Without broadcasting too much personal details, I want to be open about the fact that I have a history of self-injury and eating issues. Please be gentle with me, it is scary to share this with you! However, I feel very strongly that it is important to be open about these issues. I want to show you that it is possible to struggle and still have a lot to give! It is okay to be different, to have disorders, problems and to make mistakes.I don't wake up and feel beautiful every morning. Quite on the contrary, I very often feel clumsy, ugly, fat and unattractive. Don't we all to a certain extent? However, I have learned a few tricks over the years that help me feel succulent, alive, radiant and beautiful. Let me share them with you!10 Tips on How to Feel Beautiful Every Day1. Morning magicMake sure you wake up early enough to have a few minutes of luxurious self-care. It could be something as simple as doing your hair, painting your nails or take a hot shower with scented oils. Light a candle when you have your breakfast or put on your favourite song before you leave the house. Do something nice, just for yourself. Wear your best underwear, your favourite perfume or a special necklace or piece of jewellery.2. SmileThis one is a classic, but one that really work. Smile, smile, smile - even if you don't particularly feel like it. You will feel and look more beautiful instantly! Personally, I'm a bit shy, so I find it hard to smile to strangers sometimes. Kids, however, is a whole different matter. Make eye contact with a child and send them a loving smile. It's the best feeling in the world!3. Carry something sparkling… and I don't mean the drinkable kind. A little glitter and glam really goes a long way for feeling radiant and beautiful. I always carry a lip gloss, but I'm also in love with glittery nail polish, sparkly jewellery and pretty notebooks and glitter pens. Make sure you surround yourself with your favourite colours and textures - it will make you feel gooood.4. Eat healthy and nutritious foodEat the whole rainbow! I have this thing with colourful food and I swear I feel better when my plate at least contain something green, something yellow and something red. Orange food looks tasty, and purple food is just awesome! When you eat healthy food, you'll feel more in touch with yourself and the world around you. You'll get energy and power!5. Work outI feel that when I work out in the morning, I get a glow that is just out of this world! I...
